    I got mine at Dronefly. See their website at www.dronefly.com
    They service what they sell. Very reliable IMO.

    I would choose one of this sites paid advertisers since they are accountable to us here and one that services what they sell. All good im my opinion.

    I got mine at the local camera store. Yes, they still have real brick-n-mortar camera stores. I've been dealing there for years. So try looking for a local dealer.

    i bought mine on amazon.. fulfilled through amazon but the vendor was actually kellards, our of NYC.
    I was initially concerned that my extra battery was in the box, but i talked to the guys at kellards and they had a very good reason for it (amazon was selling it separately, not including it in the bundle). THe battery was damaged and the immediately (that day) sent me a replacement.
    I had a great experience with them...

    im also interested in purchasing one in the near future, however ive heard that an upgraded version might soon be released which explains the recent price reduction... any idea if this is true or how long from now another version will hit the market?..... based on release timelines in the past...

    I'm sure there is something coming but nothing but rumors & speculation thus far. Just keep an eye out here and I am sure as soon as something concrete is know it will be all over the forum.
